Arena Civil Dialogues: Have we privatized too much?

  • Monday, October 21, 2019
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
  • 1101 6th St SW, Washington DC
We have more private cops than police, profit-making prisons, etc. Time to reverse the trend?


You are invited to participate in a series of civil dialogues, launched by Arena Stage.

These dialogues seek to provide an opportunity for members of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan community to engage in discourse about major current issues. They also seek to demonstrate that people of very diverse viewpoints can have fruitful dialogues with one another. We hence assume that all participants have consented to heed the rules of civil dialogue, such as not attributing motives, not demonizing the other side, and showing that they truly listen to the other. There will be a few dialogue starters but most of the time will be dedicated to give and take among the participants. The dialogues will be moderated by Amitai Etzioni.

There will be a pre-dialogue reception before each event, starting at 5 p.m. Because of space limitations, registration is required but attendance is free and open to the public.

Tickets can be reserved here.
